Football critics regard Benbrook as the first of the great running guards. Despite his giant 240 pound frame, Benbrook moved with cat-like quickness and was faster than most backs. In choosing him twice, Walter Camp commented: "He leads his mates across the line with his quick, ripping charge that simply smothers the opposition. A tremendous player."
